A Song of Our Warming Planet: using music instead of big data to represent climate change, 1880-2012. Very Powerful!

Turning the metal structure of the Eiffel Tower into a musical instrument. Very cool.
A trio of daredevil musicians known as Led Zipline have taken to the skies for jamming sessions - dangling 1,000ft above a French gorge. Above, Armin Holzer plays the didgeridoo while Mich Kemeter relaxes in a hammock hanging on a highline 300m above the River Verdon in France.

Of course this one [Anne Murray] had a huge impact on me. I had the biggest crush on her. I still do.

To my family and my friends, collaborators, Warner Brothers, my managers, my bandmates and my fans over the years, this too is your moment. And I want to offer my most profound gratitude, thank you so, so, so much for your support over the years.

I think the fact that I’m standing here receiving this award says more about Canada than it does about me, because only in Canada could there be such a freak as k.d. Lang receiving this award. Only in Canada could there be people like Stompin’ Tom Connors and Rita MacNeil. So I am here to tell you, my friends and my countrymen, that it is OK to be you. It is OK to let your freak flags fly. Embrace the quirkmeister that is inside all of us.

And I’m not even just talking artists, every single person in this nation has the right to be themselves, live life go team go. I love you Canada, thank you so much.

k.d. lang at the Junos last night, receiving her award for being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. 

I ruin more amazing songs by listening to them on repeat.

Dear Spotify, come to Canada. I’m sick of this “not available where you are” bullshit.
